One part of our journey is now complete. My family and I closed on our house on Monday. And after two rather long days of moving things from a storage unit and basement to our new place…we are finally home!
I wish I could tell you I am completely at peace and full of joy but I find myself more stressed right now than I have been in the entire process. It’s amazing how much of my morning (and daily) routine is linked to being able to connect to the internet. My Bible reading/devotional is through YouVersion, I write on this blog, and I check emails and calendars for my clients as part of my virtual assistant job.
We don’t have internet at our new place yet (even though I called them 10 days ago). And, as of yesterday, I haven’t been able to firm down with the internet provider what day or what time they will be coming. All I’ve been told when I call the toll-free number is that a local representative will “be in touch.” I plan on making a trip down to the local store today in hopes of receiving a less vague response.
Vague responses freak me out. I was never in the military but I think I would have appreciated the structure of knowing exactly when things are to be done. I like to be in the know. I’ve come to accept the whole not knowing when Jesus is coming back…but this internet thing is driving me completely nuts. 😉 Okay, just trying to keep my sense of humor as I wait for this small inconvenience in my days to be resolved.
In the meantime, I will be spending much of my days drinking coffee at Panera Bread, using their internet, and getting work done. Wait…what was I complaining about again?
